My First Show
I had no idea what to expect; From the vast song catalogue (yes, I'm ashamed to admit I was expecting Casey Jones, Truckin' et al)to the parking lot scene (which didn't get overly large at Canadian venues. Whether I knew it or not at the time, it was a the beginning of a life long love affair with the band's music.
So, for the show, well... meh. I happen to like the Dead in '90 but this wasn't one of their best. The Crazy Fingers-> Cumberland Blues looks good on paper but I don't feel it worked too well. Seriously, after year of playing Crazy Fingers, they still had difficulty making the transition from the intro to the first verse. On the flip side, Estimated was pretty solid and I felt the Wharf Rat was excellent.I remember at the time Loose Lucy and He's Gone stood out for me so they have sentimental value. I also happen to be sucker for Hey Pocky Way (this version's pretty good)- a great way to kick off a set.
Another great Charlie Miller soundboard but not much more than a souvenir for me.

Great late-period gem; SBD's always welcome
Great stuff here. Some cool rarities like Crazy Fingers, and even the standard stuff has an exciting electricity, including the Wharf Rat.
Not perfect - some moments of confusion and Jer's and Brent's vocals are not always spot-on, but for the most part a terrific 1990s show.
